REVIEW: THE MAN WHO KNEW INFINITY
OVERVIEW: The true story of “a brilliant and brave man who, without a doubt, deserves the title of genius” (Devan Coggan, Entertainment Weekly), THE MAN WHO KNEW INFINITY arrives on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD August 23, 2016 from Paramount Home Media Distribution. The film will also be available for sale or rental from cable, satellite and telco providers through IFC Films.
Academy Award® winner Jeremy Irons (Reversal of Fortune) and Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) star in this enthralling true story of a friendship that forever changed mathematics. In 1913, Srinivasa Ramanujan (Patel), a self-taught Indian mathematics genius, traveled to Trinity College, Cambridge, where over the course of five years, he forged a bond with his mentor, the brilliant and eccentric professor, G.H. Hardy (Irons), while fighting against prejudice to reveal his mathematic genius to the world. THE MAN WHO KNEW INFINITY “is not so much a film about understanding the numbers, but understanding the men who made us see their merit, and the passion that drives each of us to find the true meaning in our lives.” (Miriam Di Nunzio, Chicago Sun-Times).
